    Current Spec (Unstable) and Upgrade Advice.

    Hello Everyone.

    My current system is currently unstable, I'm not too sure what I am doing wrong. The system crashes to blue screen memory dump and reboots. Below are the specs. It reboots generally on gameplay but also whilst idol.

    I'm not sure if the memory is compatible with the motherboard if someone can check this for me.

    Motherboard GA-790XTA-UD4 http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/mothe...specifications

    CPU Fan Titan Fenrir http://www.synaline.com/store/produc...PU-Cooler.html
    Memory Corair Vengeance 8GB http://www.scan.co.uk/products/8gb-(...-9-27-xmp-150v
    Display Adapter AMD Radeon 6900 Not sure of exact Model
    Hard Drive Seagate ST1000DL002 1TB http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1tb-s...cache-12ms-ncq

    I am interested in building a new gaming rig that is stable, can anyone provide details of a good system please including links. I wish to continue using the graphics card I have so looking to replace the Motherboard, Memory and CPU. Would like to increase the memory to 16GB. Any advice will be great thanks.

    Best Regards
    Chris

    I have a feeling that the memory I purchased isn't fully compatible with the motherboard. But I could be wrong....

    Turn off automatically restart system so that you can see the error code - or look in event viewer for the codes:

    start->run eventvwr.msc

    Open windows logs and click on system. Look for the big red Error messages, and one with a STOP code - paste the whole message here for help (or google the stop code). Could simply be a software driver.

    Not to me. Look for the STOP errors (they're the likely BSOD ones).

    Re: Current Spec (Unstable) and Upgrade Advice.

    I had similar problems when I was using memory that wasn't supported by my motherboard.
    It gave off dozens of different STOP codes.

    I swapped out the memory and it has worked flawlessly ever since.

    Can you borrow a memory stick off a friend for testing?

    Thank you, I'm going to install that now and let you know the results.

    Luckily I can, but could someone confirm that the memory I have is compatible?

    Thanks

    Re: Current Spec (Unstable) and Upgrade Advice.

    (Note 2) To reach DDR3 1866 MHz or above, you must install two memory modules and install them in the DDR3_3 and DDR3_4 memory sockets.

    Re: Current Spec (Unstable) and Upgrade Advice.

    You might also try running your memory at a lower speed.

    It's not on the QVL, but that's simply because it came out quite a bit after the motherboard so wasn't tested. It is compatible though.

    Thanks, I have them in the correct sockets. Also the speeds are reduced to 1600.

    Because the RAM complies with the JEDEC spec which the motherboard/CPU is rated to run.

    Re: Current Spec (Unstable) and Upgrade Advice.

    Well in theory yes, but if we were just talking about theory why would they bother with QVLs?

    The memory I had should have been compatible in theory, but it wasn't in practice. No doubt there was exceedingly complex technical reason.

    For when you need guaranteed compatibility - if you do that, you're the sort of person that ensures they only buy components from the same era and that they are tested together before being used. QVL does not test components long after release - it's literally what's available (and in the labs) at time of release.
